Some headway finally.
Am looking for this kind of movement. That i guess will engage with beveled gear on the other end of governor.
Any help on this movement would be greatly appreciated. Dia is 60 mm.
Thanks and regards
Can somebody confirm if the top portion comes off? I dont want to pry it open!
It seems it may require a Zephyr type small clockwork to power the governor. The following 3 links might give an idea on type of movement needed...
Yes, that is what I was/am also thinking.
There is a hole in the top inside. But for the mechanism to sit in there, the top of the boiler would need to be opened. I am wanting a definitive answer if top indeed is openable.
I had told my guy that probably governor sits on top, its shaft goes in...
Yes, i meant governor movement is missing. Those are square French movement, I am told by any other friend from US who has sold such boiler but unfortunately doesnt have any pics.
Yes, JM, have mailed them. let us see.
The clock mechanism works. I am confused bout the top governor. How will that automaton move? As per the SunDial Farm website,
" The animation movement is housed in the top, wound through the back and spins the governor for approximately 3 hours when wound."
This is the portion I am...
RM, I fully share your sentiments about the black and bleak history behind the clock. But it was NOT THE CLOCK which made that dark history but the people who did that. Just the way the roads and buildings etc built/commissioned by those condemnable people are not offensive, similarly this clock...
Hi, thanks for reply.
I am not able to access sundial farm website for many days now. Wonder whats the issue.
Yes, its not a replica, i bought fully aware that its governor automaton part is missing.
I am basically English Bracket Clock guy, first time venturing into French Industrial. So...
Got an Industrial Boiler clock which, time and resources perMitting, would like to have restored.
May i request the forum for pictures of the inner workings and mechanism that runs the automaton/governor?
I think date will change 12 hours later!! What happened is whenni got these here, it was in transit for a day and half. When i set the time in my home in second half of 11th, i didnt go second round (1-12 and then 12 to 3PM). Hence date may change at 3 PM i think. (I will keep an eye on it)...
Thanks for your comment. Wonder why dont you like 'doing this', afterall you are educating me by showing what I am mistaking and where I am erring.
Request you to link some other clock with equation of time and make us understand this. If you try with mathematical equatons, i would be...
